MS SQL 2005 Express Support

Postby php_pear_user » Nov 5th, '10, 00:04


Does the free version of the datagrid support connection to MS SQL server 2005 Express? Since this version of SQL requires an added driver from microsoft to support Php as the link below shows:

And since an error occurs during connection to ms sql 2005 express exactly like this:

Code: Select all

[DB Error: extension not found]
it made me feel that the datagrid source code doesn't really support ms sql 2005 and its needed additional php drivers.

Any help please....Thanks.

This is what their tech support wrote me this morning. I am still trying to get an answer from them in the paid version actually does work with SQL SERVER 2005 before I drop the money on it.


DataGrid free edition cannot work with MSSQL Server 2005, only with 2008 or later.

DataGrid paid can work with MSSQL version that supports ROW_NUMBER() function. It seems 2005 or later.
